Dream Valley and this fortnight, our theme is Stitching.
Now, normally for such a theme, I would do some faux stitching, or maybe a stitched corner detail, but I decided that this was the incentive I required to finally get our the sewing machine that my mam very kindly lent me....ahem.....about 2 years ago!! (Incidentally, I also hemmed a pair of trousers that day!!) Now, I need a lot more practice to get the spacing correct for the zigzag stitching, but I was quite happy for a first attempt!
I lightly glued the edges of my scrap strips (from last challenge's handbag card), stitched them into place, then wove a length of red ribbon through it. The charm and bow have also been stitched in to place as I don't trust glue to hold these items! And a sprinkling of glamour dust around the sentiment and some Sizziz vines/ punched flowers to finish.
I'm really looking forward to seeing your card / scrap / jewellery / cross-stitch / embroidery / whatever creations for this challenge and we have a fab prize too! A £10 voucher for One Stop Card and Crafts.
